It's always refreshing to end a genre-drought after a long period of abstinence. It's even more refreshing to end a genre-drought and be so completely swept away that I can't wait to read another just like it.

It's true, it's been longer than I can recall since I've read a horror novel. And, I can't even explain it because I really love them. When I read the synopsis for Ultimate Sacrifice, it immediately called to me. And I'm so glad that I listened to my instincts on this one.

The story starts out pretty eerily... You've got murder, intrigue, mystery, and a seemingly innocent protagonist. What could possibly go wrong?
I can usually pick out the plot early on in a story but Green had me completely lost from the beginning. Every new turn was a delightful surprise.

Want a happy ending? Try another read. Want something that'll challenge your mind and give you a good scary read? Then I suggest picking this up. It's the kind of story that'll stick with you for a while. It's the kind that I tend to dwell on for weeks because it's not a representation of something impossible. It's a look at the absolute most terrifying people and situations. Situations that, while the stuff of horror novels, it's plausible enough to linger in your thoughts.

There's a strong female lead, wrapped up in a cast of creepy side-characters.

I can't wait to pick up another Green novel. What a way to get in the Halloween mood!
